It is your responsibility to make sure that you have satisfactory insurance cover for all of the activities that will be undertaken. Chamonix Vertical recommends hiring an insurance which should cover helicopter rescue, repatriation and hospitalisation costs in case of an accident.

Mountain Risks

Mountaineering is a potentially dangerous sport.

In all kind of mountain sports, you are exposed to higher risks such as: avalanches, rock falls, crevasses, altitude problems and problems caused by extreme climatic conditions. Even if our international qualified mountain guides will take the greatest precaution there is still an increased risk due to the adventurous character of the trips.

It is necessary to prepare yourself physically and mentality for these outdoor activities. If you have any doubts of your health conditions don’t hesitate to contact your GP.

In some mountain areas rescue and medical attention can be more difficult to get.

Stays, courses and activities

Very occasionally after taking a booking for a course we will have guides cancel or we will be unable to find a suitable guide who is available. In this event we will give the customer a 100% refund on our course fees but take no responsibility for any other fees that customers have incurred like flights, hotels or any other expenses relating to the trip out with our guiding fees.

Mountaineering is highly subject to local weather and conditions. If your booked trip is not safe or practical due to such reasons every effort will be made to offer you the best suitable alternatives. Refunds won’t be available.

We try hard to get all the mountain huts according to the program but very occasionally huts are overbooked or are closed for extraordinary reasons; in this case we will try to find the best suitable alternative. No refunds are available.

Our clients have to follow the safety instructions of their guides. If you ignore that you, do it at your own risk and the guide can refuse to continue guiding.


Any contract made with Chamonix Vertical SARL shall be governed in all respects by French Law.

The legal contract for the supply of guiding is between the guide and the client.
